About the exhibition:
The exhibition Societas is a combination of two series Alés has been working on for the last two years. The “Immigration” series depicts the humanity of the immigrant, their emotional struggles and mental strength required to uproot oneself from the familiar, all that is loved and cherished, to confront the fear of the unknown and the unwelcome. The series “Monologues” captures the emotions and inner thoughts of individual archetypes. It is about seeing the inner truth when one looks in the mirror. Alés offers a window and invites the viewer to a few minutes of introspection.
